DOL Starter, VFD, Boiler


This project reviewed the method of industrial boiler operating system using AC drive or variable frequency drive or variable frequency drive over star-delta starter or DOL starter and proposed a better and cost effective approach to realizing the same boiler operating using star-delta starter many using drawbacks like this starting torque increase, over ampere high accelerates and many more. So AC drive was used to reduce the maintenance of FD and ID fan and slowly accelerates it. This system is also advantages of like this peak torque controlling under ampere speed controlling and it can use V/F mode or vector control mode system. Energy conservation is the aim of any industry. Boiler feed pumps consume a large fraction of auxiliary power used internally within power a power plant in pressurizing and forcing feed water through economizer to boiler. The changing rotation speed is the most effective and economical way of improving the pump efficiency. Adjustments made to rotation speed causes only a slight decrease in pump efficiency compared to operation with fixed revolution. This type of control allows reduction electricity consumption in wide range of loads. The VFD installation cost and financial burden is balanced against earning resulting from associated energy saving.
